Military and Veterans Services

 

UCM recognizes and values the commitment veterans, active-duty service members and their families make to our country. That’s why we are committed to finding ways to serve you in return. Whether you’re a military dependent, a veteran navigating life after the military, or an active-duty service member looking to jumpstart your future, we are dedicated to providing a military-friendly approach to education so you can reach your goals. In fact, UCM has been named a 2020 Top College for Veterans by College Factual, has earned a Military Friendly® School designation by VIQTORY and was named as a Best College for Veterans by U.S. News and World Report!
